That's pretty sick, Trogdor! Not only DSO, but I can even hear some OSDM in there too, a very nice touch. A dirty-ass production doesn't hurt, either.

 

Speaking of DSO, here's a cleaner, more progressive contrast to that dirtier, death metally one, in case you're interested. (I like yours better though, LOL)

 

 

ALSO, I thought you'd like to know that Bosse-de-nage's new split is streaming. It's great.

Thanks a ton Dave and Trogdor, Metal-fi is a really great site, very well designed and well written reviews along with a really fantastic choice in music.

Tell us what you really think very_evil_smiley.gif

 

Thank you sir, very kind.

Dave and Trogdor. Everything is good. The Site, Interface, UI, reviews, Selection of music, The round volume knobs. I hope you can continue doing this for many many years to come and get a huge readership base and finally do a corporate takeover of AngryMetalGuy gs1000.gif.

LOL.

I just checked out this band's release on bandcamp. Yeah, they seem to have more a penchant for blast beats than are really required (IMO). Track three on that CD is straight out of the DSO playbook. evil_smiley.gif

I can tell you that I was a BIG fan of Drought. I think that little EP is stunning and a new direction for DSO (the new doomish riff based progressions are just awesome).

Oh thank you, thank you. These guys are really fantastic musicians.

We actually have a nice surprise coming up semi-related to that. Stay tuned.

We love AMG. I am big big fan of Steel Druhm's reviews.

I agree, great site guys. The only thing I would change is that dynamic range thing at the bottom of each review; it can cause people to judge the album before they even hear it and as you showed with "Of Breath and Bone", it really can't be used to determine the sound quality at all.

Anyone got a chance to listen to the Deftones - Koi No Yokan? I heard it was excellent. Still waiting till the 13th to get mine.

i've heard two tracks on Sirius satellite, sounds fantastic to me, a little bit of a throwback to the older more aggressive days with the same complex songs as the last couple albums.  i can't wait for it to come out, i've always been a fan!

Yea, I've always dug them, but I've really been diving in recently. Chino's vocals are like no other.

Not a "new" release per se, but just in case anyone hasn't gotten to it yet, my review of the latest from Vintersorg.

I understand your criticism, but let me explain why we do it. Having any sort of score is going to cause some people to just jump straight to the score and decide to take a pass on the album or not. You could make the same criticism about AMG or Metal Underground with their numerical scores. The sound score is our impression of the sound quality, not the DR score.

 

So why have it? A large part of our mission is to educate our readers about what dynamic range is, and why albums with more dynamic range sound better. We also want to push the metal industry back towards dynamic music, and we feel that the best way to do that is to highlight how bad the current situation is. Rather than judging the album before listening, we hope our readers will contact the bands the like and tell them they want more dynamic records.

 

As for Be'lakor, the album would sound much better with more dynamic range. DR7 is better than DR6 or 5, but it's still not great. The other major problem with the sound of that album is the amount of clipping, and there's not really a simple way to show that (we're not going to post waveforms for each review), we just have to point it out in the section of the review covering sound quality. In an upcoming post I'm going to delve much deeper into what digital clipping is and the kind of damage that it does.
